What's an HDHP?

A high deductible health plan (HDHP) is an alternative health insurance plan to a traditional HMO or PPO plan. As the name implies, an HDHP has a higher deductible than regular health insurance plans. This may mean more out-of-pocket expenses up front. But once the deductible is met, an HDHP typically pays for 100% of covered medical costs. So in the long run, an HDHP usually means less — often significantly less — out-of-pocket expenses.

But what about that initial high deductible?

That's where combining your HDHP health insurance to a health savings account (HSA) comes in. By accumulating funds in your HSA, you will have the cash needed to cover those costs. What's even better is your HSA is tax exempt.

Dividends: APY = Annual Percentage Yield. APYs accurate as of 4/1/2021. Dividends are paid monthly based on the average daily balance in your account.  Rates are variable and may change after account is opened without notice to you. No minimum balance required to open the amount or to obtain the APY shown. 
 
Membership Requirement: All individuals are required to maintain the required par value of one share in a Regular Share account at all times.
